    I'd run top or htop after booting with it open so I could see what is spiking maybe.

    Then I would look in /var/log maybe Xorg.0.log or Xorg.0.log.old and see if any video error messages and maybe look through dmesg files for good measure.

    Just a suggestion jmandero.

    What kernel are you running as 2.6.38 seems to be "troublesome". You can find out by running
    Code:
    uname -r
    in a terminal. I think Ubuntu keeps at least one previous kernel in the grub menu.

    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
